    It's a thought, my buddy ran Cleveland in the 3:40's, then ran Chicago with similar training and qualified for Boston.

    I thought I had a great program, Hal Higdon's Advanced I Marathon Training. I trained for 18 weeks with my friend that I wrestled with in HS, (Vince Randazzo, Steve) He came in around 3:27, and he is a physical specimen. I'd be interested in what program the people who were flying by me the last 4-5 miles were on?? I ran 3 long runs of 20 miles, I think I needed to go further than that in my training. Maybe 23,24, 25? Steve, any insight???????????

    Ken,

    Yeah, I knew Boston had that 3:10:59 Q time. The advantage of Chicago is that it's a faster and flatter course (though much, MUCH more crowded).

    As far as advice, I'm out of my league. What was your peak weekly milage?

    It's good to have a training partner. When my son was in Cleveland he would gravitate to the Second Sole shoe store in Rocky River, where some of Cleveland's serious runners would train out of. They have a forum on their website. You can get info on road races in the Cleveland area. Often they are in the metroparks. Half-marathons, 10Ks, etc. You and Vince should check them out.
